    Trade Idea

    Chris Heisey and Edison Volquez for Hunter Pence.

    We need to stabilize left field. I think Hunter's defense and power would fit great in our lineup. With all the young pitchers and corner outfielders we have in the minors I don't think we would miss either of the guys we dealt. I think Pence would improve in this lineup as well. Right now he is the best bat in Houston. In Cincinnati he is 3rd at best. One could argue he would see better pitches.


    Stubbs
    Pence
    Votto
    Phillips
    Bruce
    Rolen
    Hernandez
    Janish

    That looks like a solid lineup to me.

    The Heisey fanatics on here would not do that if you threw in Wandy Rodriguez and the Astros top 5 prospects. Heisey, because of his lack of activity has become the most popular guy on team. Just like Janish was last season and Gomes in 2009/

    Ugh. I'd do it now, but I'd love to have Volquez rebuild some sort of trade value.

    The team has had an unbelievable history of trading players when their stock is at their LOWEST.

    i like the deal and ESPN suggests the Astros may move Pence, but the issue is money. Pence is at like 6.5 million this year and will probably get close to 10 million next year, I just don't see the Reds spending that kind of money on a player of his level.

    They should. Pence makes this team legit. But you'd have to give more than Heisey and Volquez.

    Captain HunterPence is their best player; they'd ask for someone cheaper than Volquez and better than Heisey. Sure would fit nice here tho
    FIRE DUSTY Never mind. The man is clearly a genius.

    They would probably want someone like Francisco/Frazier

    The more I read comments from the Mets owner and his latest proclamation that their organization is poised to lose $70M this year...........the more I think we could get Beltran for a bag of balls if we were willing to take on this contract for the rest of the season. About $12.66M at this point with 1/3rd of the season gone.

    The backup QB effect.

    Again - there is no starting QB. Give Heisey some PT, then the fans of the back-up QB would shut-up right?

    that is still around 8 million or so for a player you can't be sure will stay healthy, I would rather take a risk with Reyes...
